Collective action is the surest way to achieve positive results, as the Newfoundland & Labrador story amply demonstrates.  In these critical times, we all need to pull together! Join us for a lively session that will review the NL public libraries situation since our love-in at APLA 2016, and consider what we can do to support Nova Scotia public libraries in 2017.  Attendees will be invited to participate in an open discussion on how APLA can best support local advocacy efforts, and the new Advocacy Committee structure will be introduced.
